Every now and again I stumble across somewhere that I feel is truly special. It might be a vibrant city hotel or a quiet mountain retreat but without doubt unique and a cut above the ordinary. It was in order to share these magical places that I first started writing Boutique Travel Blog …places like Ottley’s Plantation Inn.
I can hardly believe that a year has gone by since I wrote about my favourite people on Instagram to follow in 2015.

Lisbon is a fabulous city to visit for a shortbreak, as I recently discovered for myself, and being further south than most European cities, the mild weather makes it an excellent choice for an out of season escape.

Right from the moment I wrapped myself up in the soft, white, fluffy robe I felt pampered. I was at the Solent Hotel in Hampshire on the south coast of England, for a morning of relaxation. Opening out on to a small meadow and woodland, the spa is a wonderful place to unwind, particularly on a sunny day.
We all love a bit of luxury, but there is so much more to making a hotel really memorable. I recently asked 5 well-respected travel bloggers what were their favourite luxury, boutique or eco chic hotels. They replied with a very interesting mix, from the ultimate in luxury to something a little more unusual.
In the sacred forest of Makasutu, you will find the perfect place to escape the world, relax and unwind. With just nine lodges, at many times, it will feel as if you have this magical setting all to yourself.
